“FUCK

EVERY THING AND DON’T LOOK B ACK” DIRECT MON O PRINT EDITION OF 25 Mono pr inted fr om my lino cut type letter s f or “Handmade and Bound” 2010. I wanted the image to f eel as if it was looking back on it ’s self. I think the mir r or ed letter ing achieves this ef f ect and gives the image a mor e cr yptic meaning. Ever ything is a secr et bar el y escaping.
